Christmas Challenge



Here is my card for another OWH Challenge,Christmas Cards! I'm not sure what's going on with the lighting in my photos. The card that's taken close up on a angle is more true to color. Also, it might be too punchy...maybe the sentiment should be more simple or something?!??!! Anyways,have a great  day and thanks for stopping by!

Recipe for card :


  • Cardstocks : Always Artichoke,VV and cherry Cobbler

  • Punches : Wide Oval and Ornament

  • Inks: Early Espresso,Cherry Cobbler,Old Olive and Tea Stain

  • Square Lattice Embossing Folder

  • Distressing Tool

  • Distressing Essentials Kit

  • Stamp Sets : Elements of Style, Christmas Punch and Delightful Decorations

  • Stickles

It definitely isn't too punchy, its perfect. I absolutely love how you tore and/or distressed the embossed paper. Very nice, and definitely something I plan on casing in the future...with credit going to you of course.

Great Christmas card and I think it's "just right" not too punchy at all. You have no idea how you've gotten me hooked on that embossing folder! I can't wait to get mine! :)
